The Therapeutic Chair

For those who believe in "mystical things". This chair is thought to be therapeutic and helpful in relieving stress, anxiety and fear. Sit in the bronze chair  for a moment and you should gain positive energy and strength. We all need some of that, right?

Lenina St., 1, Voronezh 394000, Russia

Monument To The Cat

semester abroad

Apparently Voronezh likes cats? Well, at least they have a monument dedicated to one! This one is pretty neat because it is more of a cartoon style cat and a bird perching on a funky tree. It's in a residential area and the neighborhood feels like "real Russia" with huge Soviet time apartments all around. 

Find it hereLizyukov St., Voronezh 394000, Russia

White Bim Black Ear

What is it about dog movies that get us so emotional? This one is no exception. "Whit Bim, Black Ear" is a Russian classic. Bim is a dog who is abandoned because his owner is ill and unable to take care of him. Because of this Bim sets out on a journey to find a new home. He has many adventures a long the way and ends up with a permanent family. *Not going to give you a spoiler, but like a lot of dog movies it's sad ending, so bring some tissues. 

This statue is of Bim, the dog, and it's super simple and cute. Watch the movie, then visit the statue!

Revolution Av., 50, Voronezh 394000, Russia

Vladimir Vysotsky


Vysotskyis a famous singer/songwriter, actor and poet in Russia.  A lot of his work was humorous and would poke fun at politics during that time. The Soviets mostly ignored Vysotsky and his work, but he had a large influence on Russia during Soviet times. He is respected and admired throughout Russia.
